About

The Chemistry - Biochemistry specialisation from Uppsala University provides you with a firm basis in advanced biochemistry covering all major areas, especially in the field of protein structure/function, macromolecular interactions, enzymology and protein engineering.

Overview

The Chemistry - Biochemistry specialisation from Uppsala University, is partly taught together with the specialisation in Chemical Biology, but provides more in-depth advanced aspects of current biochemistry and associated experimental techniques. The breadth of current biochemical research allows you to perform your degree project in a dynamic and modern research environment, using state-of-the art equipment.

Your studies will combine theoretical knowledge and practical skills in biochemistry and interfacing disciplines such as biotechnology and drug design, as well as insight into computational chemistry methods and protein crystallography. 

It includes the physical and chemical foundations to be able to take part in the research of the complex regulation of cellular signal transduction, cross-talk between proteins and possible linkage to diseases.

Career

A Master of Science in Chemistry from Uppsala University will provide you with plenty of opportunities to build an exciting future career in academia, in industry, the public sector, or in entrepreneurship. 

Not only will you gain the knowledge and ability to perform special and advanced tasks in biochemistry, you will also be qualified for positions in many other interfacing areas where problem-solving, abstract thinking and analytical ability are required.
